VIVIAN + YEE’S ARCHITECTURAL WEDDING INVITATION
We met with Yee in the cafe underneath one of the most spectacular buildings in Brisbane – The State Library, to discuss his and his fiancé Vivian’s wedding invitations. They are planning to marry in November at the library (just like we were, just over a year ago).
Getting married is a big step, and the bold monogram at once celebrates that gravitas and the smaller aspects of the union. The three dimensional monogram uses positive and negative space to create form, while the shading comes from a custom half-tone pattern made from two weights of tiny ‘additions’. The resulting invitations are clean, modern and not only reflect a respect for architecture and the city around them, but most importantly their upcoming marriage.
The invitation was printed on 300gsm Fluorescent White Crane Lettra with a matching printed envelope. For the colour we used a special mix of PMS Black 7: pantone black mixed with a touch more silver than specified, to make the colour a little more celebratory. The invitation was tucked inside the envelope along with a letterpress printed envelope liner with a plan of the city, complete with the Brisbane river winding its way through.
Architecturally inspired too, the type is set in Neutra, from House Industries.
